Abstract

Oral cavities frequently exhibit local reactive focal overgrowths. Focal fibrous hyperplasia, pyogenic granuloma, peripheral giant cell granuloma, and peripheral ossifying fibroma are all examples of localised reactive lesions that can manifest on the gingiva. This article describes a case of a male patient who reported with a growth measuring around 1x0.8 cm in the buccal aspect of the mandibular anterior teeth, hard in consistency, extending from 42 to 44. Diode laser was used to excise the growth. The growth was diagnosed as focal fibrous hyperplasia based on the characteristic clinical and histopathological features. No adverse events or recurrence occurred during the 6-month follow-up period.

Keywords: Traumatic fibroma, irritational fibroma, diode laser, soft tissue lesions
